    Negatives first. It isn’t forward thinking, so still USB-B (Mini) instead of USB-C and so that means fiddling when charging. Doesn’t include a charger cord and wall plug-in, despite base price now being higher than on older models while the overall design appears to mainly reuse the older hardware. Screen feels like plastic with no oleophobic coating (such as on most phones), which mimics paper to some extent but also means more smudges. Bezels are still large, and the Amazon cases still further add to the size. In all, while an upgrade over the last Paperwhite it is minor. If not for the sale I would not have picked it up, a used last gen is just as good (water resistance aside).

    I gave this to my daughter for Christmas. She doesnt use it often as the graphics fuzz out everytime she changes screen. It is much smaller than the box and barely bigger than a smart phone. So she usually just reads on her phone. No color, just black and white. She lives how dim you can make it and the incredible battery life. Probably not worth buying unless you read so much your phone would never have any battery, lol.

    The Kindle Paperwhite screen is wonderful. The interface is not as user friendly as an iPhone. I wish you could use it in landscape mode vs portrait as typical book. The ads are annoying unless you subscribe. Access to free and low .99¢ collections of classic authors is outstanding. I wish they had this device when I was in school. As poor folk we never went to libraries.

    Thin and sleek which I like.. Some glitches. its stuck indexing longer than the typical kindle and the contrast fades then goes back to normal back and forth. It freezes a lot as well which never happened to me before. I also like the extra storage. I wish bestbuy had the 32gb model in store

    I have had a Nook, The Nook is easier to navigate, and is more user friendly. However, the Kindle has a wider selection of titles, but needs to have a list of new titles for each week. The Kindle claims to hold a charge for a longer period, but with usage, they seem to be equivalent.

    I don't know if it's my specific piece or the product in general but i feel like the user interface is really slow. Especially in this day and age.

    Kindles have always had too many ads that distract and clutter. However, over all functions of the kindle is what I was looking for.

    The library menu is not as user friendly as my previous kindle or my old Nook reader.

    This ereader is light, but the touch screen is difficult to use.
